    Summary

    Unconsciously, her hand touches her bare neck again. It comes away wet, the thick, shaggy locks of her unwieldy bob cut dripping at the ends.

    Somedays, Kurusu Akira is so sick of the cost of living she feels like she could vomit fire and drown.

    Summary

    "I cannot end your tragedy, young knight." They whispered, dragging fingernails over his hairline, following his rapid pulse down to the base of his throat. "So instead I will make it beautiful."

    In which there is love, and friendship, and blood, and flowers growing where they shouldn’t.

    Summary

    A thematic successor to Part 1, Calm Waters Run Deep. Picks up where Part 2 ended, "Do you really remember me?" Runs through the 'true' ending and goes a short time past. First-person POV, Zelda.
    Do not HAVE to read the rest of the series but you'll lose some flavor and miss references.

    Fair warning: this has become surprisingly autobiographical. I am pulling from my personal experience of trying to build a relationship with someone who has PTSD, a traumatic brain injury, and memory loss. (spoiler: we've been together 11 years and are happy as pigs in shit) My experience is not universal, and this is not meant to be a definitive look at PTSD, trauma, or the recovery process. If this sounds like it might be triggering to you, please keep scrolling.

    **Explicit rating for chapter 11.**
